TOKYO – 4-time Grand Slam Champion Naomi Osaka (JPN) connected her passion for art with tennis.
Naomi and Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind, white-based racquet with an iconic Murakami cherry blossom design.
Naomi will debut the new cosmetic at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Naomi x Murakami EZONE racquet will only be used by Naomi and is not for sale. Naomi will auction a small number of racquets with all proceeds benefiting Play Academy with Naomi Osaka (PANO). More information to come…
